Please, Release Me!

From the story "Left With A Bride"

"Two weeks ago Father Heffron refused to marry a tall, soldierly looking man and a plump red-cheeked woman, who made their appearance at the cathedral at 6 o'clock in the morning. The refusal was not on account of the early hour, but because he had received a tip that the tall man was already the husband of an equally attractive woman, who is a resident of the West side, and a well-known actress."
